Speech

Fall into Good Speech Habits this season!

What are somethings we are working on in Speech and Language?

“WH” Questions

What do these mean?

A question that begins with “what” asks a question about a thing.

A question that begins with “who” asks a question about a person.

A question that begins with “when” asks a question about time.

A question that begins with “where” asks a question about a place.

A question that begins with “why” or “how” asks the reason why something has occurred.

Basic Language Concepts

What is a basic language concept?

Some Opposites (i.e. Hot/cold, in/out, up/down, empty full)

Categories (i.e. Colors, Shapes, Sizes, etc.)

Social & Emotional States (i.e. Happy, Sad, etc.)

Spatial Relationships (i.e. Front, Behind, Top, Bottom)

Shapes

Sequences

Speech Sounds

For my students working on articulation, keep up the good work and continue the practice! Here is a link describing the reason that teaching “R” is so tricky; this link also has some tips for practicing “R” at home. Interesting read! https://www.superduperinc.com/handouts/pdf/102%20RforParents.pdf

Please note, not all children are working on speech AND language. Some students are working on only articulation, only language, or a combination of both. If you have any questions regarding speech and language therapy or anything concerning your child, please feel free to contact me! I am very proud of the speech and language progress thus far with all of my students!
